During an interview with Inside the Ropes, Chris Jericho spoke about not wanting to face Fandango at WrestleMania, which opened up Vince McMahon revealing how he feels about the Intercontinental Championship.
‘’What about Wade Barrett? I’m a nine-time Intercontinental Champion. I could go for my tenth victory, the record-breaking tenth Intercontinental Championship.’ [Jericho asked McMahon]. [Vince McMahon] goes, ‘Oh nobody cares about the fucking Intercontinental Championship,’ and I said, ‘Well they don’t care about Fandango either,’ and he goes, ‘That’s your job is to make them care’ and I said, ‘So I can’t change your mind?’ He goes, ‘No’ so I hung up on him. I hung up on my billionaire boss because I wasn’t happy with what he wanted me to do, prima donna Jericho in the hiz.”
